    Adding statement of responsibility to Title in Primo VE

    The default Title display in Primo VE includes the $a and $b, but not the $c. Our catalogers really wanted this field - known as the Statement of Responsibility - to show on the same line as the Title. To do this, I was able to use a simple normalization rule:

    In Alma, under "Discovery" -> "Display Configuration" -> "Manage display and local fields", click "Add field" -> "Add display field" (not local field). You then select Title, which provides the ability to modify the Marc21 normalization rule. I erased what was there and put in the following:

    rule "Primo VE - Title 245"
                    MARC."245" has any "a,b,c"
                    create pnx."display"."title" with MARC."245" sub without sort "a,b,c"

    Click Save -> Back -> and then "Apply rules" (important to do this - other wise your change will not take effect).
